There have been many recent posts, including one by me, about seeing icons in Zone Alarm in
the top right corner with a hand underneath that are "listening" when you put the cursor under them.
They usually say something like "windows server listening to tcp port 139" or something like that and the other will say "host process listening to udp ports 49502" and sometimes more ports listed.
The new information, or at least to me, is that this only seems to happen when the pc is coming out of sleep mode.
Has anyone else noticed that?
I just tested it and after boot up these icons for listening are not there, then I surfed using both Firefox and IE and still no listening either during surfing or
after closing the browser.
Then I did not put the computer into sleep but just left it on and still no listening.
After some time leaving it alone the pc went into sleep on its own and on awakening the "listening" icons were back.
Does this make any sense and is this normal and do you think this is anything to be concerned about?
This is using Vista and Zone Alarm free in my case.
Thank you for any help.
